absence of water

pools

in the thirties UK lidos and baths were at the peak of their popularity. gradually tastes have changed, resulting in a drop in attendances, leaving the pools uneconomical to run. many fell into decay and many were demolished. only a handful of pools remain today as a symbol of a bygone era.

learning to float

dee-baby

this is me as a tot learning how to float (so i wouldn’t drown if i ever landed in a pool by accident). parents take note: take your babies for floating lessons. it has served me well, as i am not dead yet.
